High School Preperation for the Entire Family
THE HIGH SCHOOL ADMISSIONS PROGRAM (HSAP) provides Ancona families with relevant education, resources and tools to better navigate high school admissions locally and nationally. Starting as early as the 4th grade, families are invited to attend parent education events that unpack the high school admittance process.
Ancona has an excellent track record of placing students in the most selective Chicago high schools (independent, Catholic and public), and our graduates are thriving academically. As our families navigate the high school application process, we encourage them to investigate a wide range of options. We want our families to find those “just right” schools that will best serve a student and allow him/her to thrive, rather than to focus only on those high schools that may be popular in any given year.

THE ANCONA GRADUATE
Ancona graduates are highly motivated, independent and thoughtful young people who know how to make the most of any educational setting in which they find themselves; our graduates are thriving not only academically, but also as confident school leaders. Throughout the Middle School years, Ancona’s teachers emphasize the research, organization and study skills essential to learning in any high school and beyond.
